Broken boards equals broken dreams. Chris Russell had it in the bag but one too many hang-ups enabled Tom Schaar to spin his way to the top. Meanwhile, Pedro Barros stole the show with a death defying NBD. 10 years of the Pool Party and this was the best one yet! Cheers, Vans!
Here's one of the heaviest vert sessions to take place in recent memory, including rippers from three generations: Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Rune Glifberg, Lincoln Ueda, Mike Frazier, Chris Russell, and many others.
Vert skating is still some of the heaviest shit you can do on four wheels. Upstarts Jimmy Wilkins, Tom Schaar and Sam Beckett trade walls with legends Rune Glifberg, PLG and Jake Brown. And then there's the dudes who've never worn pads in their lives - Chris Russell gets stuffed then shuts it down!
Eerily reminiscent of Carbondale 10 years later, the song remains the same. Pedro Barros took 1st in bowl and Couch wore no shoes. Algorta BOWL-A-RAMA and P-Stone were there.
Chalmers opened up the park and everyone got theirs with Sluggo shutting her down. The big dance is today kids. Watch it right here!
Legends and young bucks converge each year on this hulking concrete behemoth. Congrats to Vans on 10 years of Combi and big ups to Tristan Rennie for coming out on top. This kid went ape...
